The Queen gave Prince Harry and Meghan Markle priceless gifts when they moved into Frogmore Cottage.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved into the Grade-II listed home on the Frogmore Estate, Windsor in 2019 before the birth of their son, Archie. After living there for a short period, the family relocated to California the following year.
It continues to be their UK residence, and Meghan and Prince Harry are set to return for a stay around the Queen’s 95th birthday in Apr., according to Hello. Plans for Her Majesty’s annual Trooping the Colour birthday parade is slated for June but is likely to be altered depending on coronavirus restrictions.
After moving into Frogmore Cottage, the Queen said Harry and Meghan could choose artwork from the Royal Collection. This includes pieces by Michelangelo, 550 drawings by Leonardo Da Vinci, and over 40 paintings by Canaletto.
It also comprises work by modern artists such as Sir Anish Kapoor and Andy Warhol. It is the world’s largest private collection and includes one million objects. “Meghan and Harry have been told they can choose some artwork for Frogmore Cottage, ” a source told Vanity Fair during the move.
“They have been presented with a list of paintings that would be available to them and they are making up their minds as to what they would like.” Last Nov., Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank moved into the five-bedroom cottage but left six weeks later.
Eugenie is now thought to be based at the Royal Lodge and is expecting her first child soon. The Royal Lodge is the childhood home she shared with her older sister Beatrice, and it currently serves as the residence of parents Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York.
During an appearance on the Heirpod podcast, royal expert Omid Scobie said Eugenie and Jack are likely to stay there for most of 2021. “I imagine that’s probably where they will remain up until much later in the year,” he said.
Harry and Meghan have been spotted a few times since they moved into an £11million property in Montecito, California in 2020. Rob Lowe, who lives about one mile away noted that Harry has been “very reclusive” and that catching a glimpse of him is like “seeing the Loch Ness Monster.” Watch this space for the latest Royal Family news.
